The quality and variety was impressive; entries came from Ontario, Newfoundland, Saskatchewan and Montana besides locally for the Bentley Fair bench exhibit art/framed photography section.

Even though entries were up overall, with a total of 65 adult entries, the number of junior entries was slightly down, indicated convener Lorraine Neal.

There were 15 adult firsts, 12 seconds and 10 third placings with 18 firsts, 15 seconds and 12 thirds given to juniors.

The overall winners and Judges’ Choice winners for adults were Lisa Neal (painting) and Leo de Groot (photography), and for juniors was Samantha Frattaroli (junior drawing) and Loden Neal (junior photography).

Judges were Jody Rawlyck for the photography, and Jeanette Van Hyfte and Suzan King for the art and painting section. Especially helpful volunteers were Pam Jones, Michele Mackintosh, Rhonda Szasz and daughter Brooke, and some of Brooke’s friends.

Neal had a special display of her photos set up at the rear of the exhibit area adding to the show.

In a different category, Sheila Budd was the busy judge for the 314 entries in the Crafts, Hobbies & Amateur Photography section of the 2012 fair. There were 40 preschool, 92 junior, and 49 young adult entries, up 88 from 2011, said convener Joan Dickau.
